On the occasion of Chris Isham's 70th birthday, there will be a meeting on "Modern Issues in Foundations of Physics" at Imperial College from September 26 to 28, 2014. September 26 is the day of arrival, with a get-together and informal drinks in the evening, and the actual meeting will take place on the weekend of September 27/28.

If you want to attend the conference dinner on Saturday, September 27, please note that you must register and will have to pay £25 on arrival. Restaurant seats are pre-booked, so timely registration is required. Please inform us about any dietary requirements you may have.
